My Fallen Angel

My Fallen Angel
 
 
He has black magic in his voice,
And I’m under his spell
Apollyon, he sits waiting
At the sheer cliffs of Hell
 
With my soul hanging in balance 
I can’t but wonder why
Of all the sins of mortal flesh 
For me he will defy
 
The reason of his creation 
The purpose of his being,
Am I this angel’s temptation?
Then why does my heart sing
 
In agony and in ecstasy 
Just once to hold him close?
If I am to be his Lillith
I’d have more strength, suppose? 
 
Yet no, I am but virgin clay
To be molded, desired
In any and in every way
Tempered in his fires.
 
Held captive in his seduction 
And drowned in ocean eyes,
I let him wrap me in his wings 
And fly us to the skies.
 
I am not me, I cannot be
Till entwined in our love
And guilty of purity, we 
Are Fallen to above.

Wow, a week already. Here’s a hurrah for that! And the to people who are following my blog, thank you ever so much. You don’t know how much I appreciate the encouragement. Much love! =)

I’ve always had a particular fascination for angels. I suppose it’s natural, in a way, to be envious of the guileless purity they signify. What enamors me more in the many books I’ve read recently, is their human aspect more than their faultlessness. Something about angels being only human too? That paradoxical statement probably gives away a lot about my psyche, it is rather open to interpretation, but I’ll stand by it, just what I think, that’s all.

 

I suppose I’m rambling again, but I don’t want this blog to be some sort of monologue where I prattle away. More of a Socratic discourse, I think, would be more beneficial all round. So feel free to join the babble. Tell me what you’re doing, what you would like to read, or what you would like me to write about. Tell me what you think. 🙂

    Your blog will become your outlet to self-publish your poetry, to show the world, “Hey, look what I did”. Once it catches wind and takes off like a chinese kite, the next step will be a bound book with your own bylines in it.

    • I really, really hope so, Don. Having my own book published is something I’ve dreamt of since I was little, almost since I started writing. Thank you so much for your encouragement and sweet lines. I appreciate it a lot. 😀 😀

  5. I love Angels too. I have written many songs about them. Your poetry reminds me of lyrics to a song. It is flowing, with depth and passion, yet simple enough to follow and get easily caught up in. Some poetry is so cerebral I kinda go, whaaaat? Very well done. Brava.

  6. Hello again, John. 🙂

    Thank you so much. It’s not just Angels. I have this fascination for demonlore, and mythology too, not to mention any exceptionally well written fantasy books. It all stems from books in the end, so if I go loony I shall blame the authors. 😛

    And I know what you mean. I find I can’t write like that, just as I’m hesitant with free verse. I totally admire people who can, they really seem eons ahead in skill and expression. Maybe in twenty years I’ll learn to be all loquacious and multiloquent (yay!), but for now I’m sticking with what I know. 🙂

    Thanks for stopping by. I’ll be putting up some more soon, so hope to see you again! 🙂

    • Thank you! And oddly enough, that came true in a way neither of us could’ve predicted. A pigeon landed in my yard today, with a broken wing. Mister Widgen is currently snoozing in my store room, lol.

      • Incoming Angel, indeed! Keep us posted on BirdAngel Widgen. The synchronicity continues. I think I found you, or you me, on Pigeonheart’s blog, pigeonheartponderings. She is an awesome prose writer. Synchronicity rules !! (or should).
